Jason Klein on Shell’s energy transition strategy This video is sponsored by Shell. “Society faces a dual challenge of how do we make this transition to a low-carbon economy while at the same time extending the benefits of energy to everyone on the planet while adjusting that climate risk and the way that society is going to do that is to go through an energy transition that will change the way energy is produced, the way it’s transported and ultimately the way it is consumed and Shell is a willing and eager player in this energy transition.” Joel Makower, chairman & executive editor at GreenBiz, interviewed Jason Klein, chief of staff and vice president of energy transition strategy at Shell during the VERGE 20 virtual event (October 26-30, 2020).

How Keurig Dr Pepper is increasing its packaging recyclability In 2019, Keurig Dr Pepper launched its Drink Well. Do Good. corporate responsibility platform aimed, in part, at reducing its environmental footprint. One of the goals of the platform was to convert all packaging to recyclable or compostable formats by 2025, while increasing the use of recycled content.  Monique Oxender, chief sustainability officer at Keurig Dr Pepper, shared status updates on this goal and details about the work that went into improving the recyclability of its packaging. “You have to make sure that something is not just recyclable but that it is going to be recycled,” she said. “We took this innovative pathway of engagement with recyclers and communities, used that feedback to inform our design. And now as we’re rolling out the product and you’re seeing it on shelves, consumers can recycle with confidence.”   John Davies, vice president and senior analyst at GreenBiz, interviewed Monique Oxender, chief sustainability officer at Keurig Dr Pepper, during Circularity 20, which took place August 25-27, 2020.

Comments Off on Morgan Stanley’s role in addressing the plastic waste problem

Morgan Stanley’s role in addressing the plastic waste problem When Morgan Stanley decided to launch its Plastic Waste Resolution in April 2019, it had realized that plastic waste was a business issue. That was after looking at its global client base, which includes companies across industries from chemicals to consumer packaging, as well as individuals and governments.  “We realized that actually gives you the entire plastic waste value chain, from creation, use, disposal, reuse or not, disposal or not,” said Audrey Choi, chief marketing officer and chief sustainability officer at Morgan Stanley, “Although we ourselves weren’t [on the] frontlines of any of those stages, we really touched all of it.” As a financial institution, Choi said the company realized it had a role to play in addressing the plastic waste problem at the systems level. Joel Makower, chairman and executive editor at GreenBiz, interviewed Audrey Choi, chief marketing officer and chief sustainability officer at Morgan Stanley, during Circularity 20, which took place August 25-27, 2020.

Comments Off on How Tetra Pak plans to reach net zero by 2030

How Tetra Pak plans to reach net zero by 2030 If you’ve ever drank juice from a carton package, it may have been supplied by Tetra Pak, a multinational food processing and packaging company. One of its ambitions is to deliver “packages made entirely from renewable and/or recycled materials that are fully recyclable,” according to the company site. And it seems to be moving toward that goal. “If you take our standard package, you’ll see that around 71 percent of the raw materials come from a renewable source today,” said Luana Pinheiro, sustainability manager at Tetra Pak. “Our packages offer a lower carbon footprint when compared to other alternatives.” Now the company is working to further improve its sustainability efforts by committing to reaching net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in its operations by 2030 and across its entire value chain by 2050. Shana Rappaport, vice president and executive director of VERGE at GreenBiz Group, interviewed Luana Pinheiro, sustainability manager at Tetra Pak, during Circularity 20, which took place August 25-27, 2020.

Comments Off on Partnership is key for InterContinental Hotels Group’s circularity goals

Partnership is key for InterContinental Hotels Group’s circularity goals InterContinental Hotels Group, which has tens of thousands of properties currently in operation or development, has a large footprint. But did you know that many of its properties are run by third parties? That makes working toward sustainability goals challenging, according to Catherine Dolton, vice president of global corporate responsibility at the company. “It’s all about influencing those third parties to make changes,” she said. Still, it’s striving toward big goals. Earlier in 2020, the hotels group set science-based targets to address its water and waste impacts, as well as how it works with the communities in which is operates. And it’s started working in partnership with other companies to try to reach its circular economy goals. “We do have the power to make a difference,” Dolton said. “It’s not just about collaboration outside the industry. We also work with out peers through the International Tourism Partnership.” Shana Rappaport, vice president and executive director of VERGE at GreenBiz Group, interviewed Catherine Dolton, vice president of global corporate responsibility at InterContinental Hotels Group, during Circularity 20, which took place August 25-27, 2020.
